Even though writer/director John Carney has enjoyed success in Irish film and television with the likes of Zonad, On The Edge and Bachelors Walk, outside of his home country he is most known for 2007's Once, his low budget feature which celebrated the power of music, set in the world of Dublin buskers. Once went onto be a massive critical success, and has been adapted into a Tony award winning play. Carney returns to that well somewhat with Begin Again. The original title, Can a Song Save Your Life?, tells you all you need to know about the movie, a feel good celebration of music and staying true to yourself, all set against the back drop of New York City. Begin Again starts in the middle, with Greta (Keira Knightley) performing an aggressive song written about her ex Dave (Adam Levine) on the stage of a New York dive bar, »

Keira reveals who she's crushing on.
Keira Knightley recently spoke to The Advocate to promote her new film Begin Again, in which she stars as a struggling singer-songwriter opposite Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine, when the notoriously shy British actress revealed her girl crush.
"I just watched The Punk Singer, the documentary about Kathleen Hanna from Bikini Kill, so I actually have to go with her," she shares. "She might be my top girl crush of all time, really. I love a riot grrrl."
Knightley, 29, also lets the magazine know that she's totally down for a lesbian sequel to her huge breakout 2002 film Bend It Like Beckham.
"This is the first I've heard of it, but that would've been exciting. It also would've meant a lot to so many young gay people," she says about the rumors that writer-director Gurinder Chadha originally envisioned »
The madness of San Diego Comic-Con is upon us, and that means it’s speculation time. Marvel is always a highlight of the event, and this morning the studio “announced” that its Hall H panel is set for Saturday from 5:30-6:30pm. I say “announced” because the official description of the panel is as follows: “Marvel Studios President and Producer Kevin Feige and special guests will provide an inside look at the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe.” That’s incredibly vague, but not altogether surprising given that Marvel loves to keep things under wraps. However, even though no official Comic-Con announcements have been made, we actually have a pretty good idea of what the panel will entail. Much more after the jump. With Guardians of the Galaxy being a focus of last year’s panel, and given the fact that it opens on August 1st, Marvel has already said »

Today sees the UK cinematic release of John Carney’s Begin Again which was first shown way back in September at the Toronto International Film Festival. The musical comedy-drama tells the story of Greta (Keira Knightly) who finds herself abandoned in New York after her long-term boyfriend strays having found some fame in New York’s music scene. Things start looking up for Greta when Mark Ruffalo’s character, disgraced record exec Dan, enters her world after stumbling in on her performance on an East Village stage. The film opens slowly but is eventually redeemed by the undeniable chemistry of Knightly (who does the musical numbers herself) and the self-pitying Ruffalo.
In recent times Ruffalo is most remembered for his turn as Bruce Banner in The Avengers – this more recent role in Begin Again represents a return to his more artsy roots. The 46-year-old may not be »

Keira Knightley plays Greta, a Norah Jones-like singer-songwriter in John Carney's Begin Again, formerly known as Can a Song Save Your Life? It's a typically brave performance from an actress who is always prepared to try anything. Mark Ruffalo is Dan, a record-company exec whose life is in meltdown but who recognises Greta's potential after hearing her perform in a tiny New York club. »
The haul primarily came through big showings from FX’s “American Horror Story: Coven,” with 17 noms, and HBO’s “The Normal Heart,” with 16. “Glee” contributed a comedy directing nom for Paris Barclay.

This year's Emmys is going to be Gaaaaaaay. And we couldn't be happier. Gay stories are being honored, including The Normal Heart and Modern Family (polar opposite depictions of gayhood). Straight actors who played gay have been nominated, such as Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Andre Braugher and Mark Ruffalo. And arguably most importantly of all, openly gay actors like Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon (Kate McKinnon!!!), were celebrated, for playing both gay and straight characters.

Unsurprisingly, HBO leads this year's nominees for the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. The network's early days of AIDS telemovie "The Normal Heart" dominated its categories with a full nine nominations amongst the major awards. Their fantasy series "Game of Thrones" scored the most nominations of any program overall - six for the major awards and a further thirteen amongst the technical awards.
Regarding the major awards, FX's "Fargo" was the show in front with eight nominations; "Breaking Bad," "Orange is the New Black," "House of Cards" and "Downton Abbey" were next with seven; "Game of Thrones," "Modern Family" and "American Horror Story: Coven" all scored six; "True Detective" and "Sherlock" got five each; "The Good Wife," "Mad Men" and "Veep" nabbed four apiece; and "Luther," "Masters of Sex," "Silicon Valley," "Scandal" and "Louie" all scored three each.

The nominations for the 66th Emmy Awards were released this morning, and I’m surprisingly satisfied with the results. Though there were an overabundance of nominations for the so-so Netflix series House of Cards and not nearly enough (read: any) for BBC America’s criminally-underrated Orphan Black, including for lead actress Tatiana Maslany, the categories shook out in a mostly predictable, if fair way.
Of course, heavyweights Breaking Bad and True Detective will be duking it out in the Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series categories (the latter of which saw both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson swipe nominations). Other shows which scored big include American Horror Story: Coven, dominating the Miniseries categories, Game of Thrones, which has the most nominations at 19, and Fargo, trailing just behind with 18.
I’m particularly pleased to see Idris Elba squeak into Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie »

Lead Actor in a Drama
- Gary Collinson
The 2014 Emmy Award nominations were announced today and led by HBO's "Game of Thrones" with 19 total nominations. New show "Fargo" scored 18, followed by "American Horror Story", "Breaking Bad", The Normal Heart and not too far down the line "True Detective" with 12. The one show I love and continue to watch, "Hannibal" received zero nominations, but then again, I have never paid too much attention to the Emmys, primarily because people have to nominate themselves, something I've never understood. "Game of Thrones" 19 "Fargo" 18 "American Horror Story: Coven" 17 "Breaking Bad" 16 "The Normal Heart" 16 "Saturday Night Live" 14 "House of Cards" 13 "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" 12 "Downton Abbey" 12 "Orange Is the New Black" 12 From a network perspective, leading the pack was HBO, coming in just one nomination shy of a 100 and it wasn't even a close race with CBS coming in second with 47.

The abundance of quality programming and expanding number of options has created a logjam for the nighttime Emmy Awards, where the celebration over which shows earned nomination will inevitably give way to plenty of second-guessing about those that were overlooked.
Despite the onslaught of competition from sources such as Netflix, HBO – with its multifaceted lineup consisting of series, star-studded movies like “The Normal Heart” and specials – garnered 99 Emmy bids, the most nominations overall for the 14th consecutive year. The network amassed 108 nods in 2013.

Still, the burgeoning competition for the bragging rights and promotional benefits associated with Emmy recognition could be seen in the encroachment of new players, as well as the receding presence of the broadcast networks that share televising the awards on a rotating basis.
Netflix, for example, more than doubled its tally from 14 nominations in what amounted to its maiden year – when “House of Cards »
